It is usually a challenge to come up with a new idea of how to decorate our family room mantel. I always aim to have it represent our family in some way. Since we enjoy spending time at our family's cabin in the mountains, that tends to influence my ideas very strongly. This year's mantel idea actually took form last winter when we found this big toboggan on clearance in the after-Christmas sale at TJ Maxx. The red plaid cushion and heirloom quality wood literally called out to me across the store!
Finally, I couldn't resist one more addition to this mantel display. I think our sweet golden retriever, Dax, completes the picture quite well.
Thanks for stopping by today. I have a lot more holiday decor to share, including the rest of our family room in the Holiday House Walk this Friday. I hope you'll be back! Please be sure to visit my talented blogger friends using the links below.
